Corbels are wall brackets that are highly decorative or can be used to support almost any heavy object such as shelf, a sculpture, a vase or almost any other object. The beauty and sophistication that these supportive structures add to any room reflects a wide design range from classical to modern.
Corbels are the perfect ornament for kitchens and can be used to support counter tops, work islands and decorative vent hoods. These items turn an ordinary kitchen into a custom design with the feeling of a hand-crafted accent. Corbels are great accent pieces in bathrooms to support a counter, to make a towel bar, and frame a bath. In the shower they are often used to enhance and enlarge the soap and shampoo area. Corbels can add sophistication to the entryway when used in place of a keystone or as plinth blocks at the base of a primary doorway.
The use of Corbels on the outside of a home are almost limitless. They are excellent decorative pieces above a window or door with the use of other Mesa Precast trim pieces or as a single accent. They also add interest to square posts whether they are masonry or wood. Outside lights that look only utilitarian can become designer pieces with a corbel of almost any style beneath the fixture. Corbels also work enhancing the beauty and use of outdoor porches, particularly for shelving or serving area.
